Poverty and beauty

Cattle pastures, olive groves, cork oaks and barren meadows characterize the beautiful landscape in Alentejo, here near Beja.

The region is one of the poorest regions in Western Europe, the economic structure is mainly characterized by agriculture. In the 1950s to 1980s, many young men from the region emigrated to Lisbon or went abroad as guest workers. | Portugal
